Why don't I have to show an ID to vote for president or anyone else?


I have to show an ID to any policeman that asks, to get a prescription,see the doctor, get my blood drawn, board an air plane, get my taxes done, write a check, accept a job, withdraw money at the bank and sometimes when I use a credit card. Why don't I have to show my ID when I vote for people who will spend billions of mine and other peoples dollars?

    Maybe you should take what evidence you have and launch a suit to get that changed. If you can't, perhaps you should get honest and admit voter fraud happens. I'm sure the black panthers will help you fund it.

    Really? My best friend lives in North Carolina. She received a sample ballot at her parents home in CA. She voted in NC in 2010. She is still on the CA rolls and could have voted in both places if she were a criminal

    more sarcasm? i do agree that mail ins are cast anyway the recipient so desires. Purging is never appropriate when done just before elections. Standard practices has been that this practice is inappropriate.

    If a special type or kind of photo Id is required to vote in this election. So unique that voters who voted for years with regular ID's would no longer be eligible to vote in this election. That would be voter surpression.

    When my husband moved from Michigan to California he was fabergasted that he didn't have to show ID. I voted in my first election in November of 1972. You don't even have to show ID to register here.

    There have been cases in Louisiana. In one case the total vote for a precinct exceeded the population of the precinct. A group of people have voted on behalf of the occupants of the local cemetery. I covered the aftermath of that story. It is true.

    Showing ID is a form of protection, and anyone who wants to do away with it is up to something without a doubt.

    Texas and Florida don't have that and are being sued by the federal government because they would like to require ID. CA doesn't require ID. The fact that at least 3 key states are that open to fraud should make everyone shiver.
